The full-back, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Boro, was sent off late on during the midweek draw at Leeds and serves a one-match ban.

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli played for the reserves in midweek as he continues his recovery from knee ligament damage.

Cauley Woodrow (broken metatarsal) and Lasse Christensen (hamstring) are both still unavailable.

Boro boss Aitor Karanka will again be without midfielder Adam Clayton as he completes a two-match ban after being booked for the 10th time this season.

However, central defender Ben Gibson is available again following the one-game suspension he incurred for his red card at Leeds on February 15.

George Friend returned to action in Tuesday night’s 3-1 home victory over Cardiff after missing three matches with a fractured shoulder blade, but he will not be joined in the squad by fellow defender Daniel Ayala.

Ayala is closing in on a return from an ankle injury which has sidelined him for the last three games, although he will not be ready for Saturday and 18-year-old Dael Fry could deputise once again.
